I've seen it on pintrest and my sil says she prefers it from the oven. Since I'm making blt grilled cheese sandwiches tonight I figure I'll give it a try.

It seems fairly simple to do. Have a cookie sheet lined with goil. Place bacon n foil (make sure jo are touching or over lapped). Bake for 15-20 minutes in a preheated oven at 375 degrees. If the bacon is thick you'll have to drain it half way through.

I'll post pictures after I'm done.

I saved the grease. In the bottom of my pan I put foil so I can pour it into something else and use it as I please.

Quoting Kimberly954:

Hm, interesting. I rarely cook bacon but when i do its because i want the grease for something beans or baked beans or asparagus or something.

I don't see any pictures.


I tend to do mine in a skillet. I cook bacon so rarely though. Of course there are months when we go wild on the bacon. I make a lot of dishes that have bacon as an ingredient some months. Potato soup, potato skins, blt's, 

OH wow. I just realized that we had blt's recently because I was hungry for them.

Good idea!

Quoting OliviaW.:

I used a broiler pan with rack. In the bottom of the pan I put a layer of foil down so I only have to clean the rack. It might not be the right rack but it worked.

Quoting KamsOne:

I've been wanting to try baking bacon.  But I've only ever heard of putting it on a rack, not directly onto a foil lined baking pan.  And I don't have the right rack for it.  So maybe I'll just try it on the pan.

 I always make our bacon in the oven. We eat turkey bacon, so there isn't a lot of the extra grease like regular bacon and I noticed if I cook it on top of the stove it dries out really easily.. I put mine in the oven at 400 for 15-20 minutes, gives it a nice crisp.. =)

Here's a picture. The turkey bacon I baked for 25 minutes. The regular bacon, one type was baked for 15 minutes while the dark was baked for 23 minutes.

 I almost always make it that way, I hate getting popped by the grease and it comes out so much straighter.

Thanks for the idea...I've always fried it.

This is the only way I make bacon anymore

I make it this way, I usually flip it about half way through as well. It comes out great.
